Retrospective Screening of Vicente Aranda’s Amantes (Lovers: A True Story) and Post-Screening Discussion with Festival Director Jaie Laplante. Celebrating Classic Premios GOYA (Spain’s Academy Awards) Winners to Mejor Película, Mejor Director (Best Film, Best Director) in 1992
In the early 1990s, Spanish cinema was emboldened with a new sense of fearlessness, and the world took notice. Vicente Aranda’s shocking Amantes (Lovers: A True Story) – itself based on a shocking crime that occurred in Madrid in 1950 – retains its vitality and power more than 25 years later. Victoria Abril won the Silver Bear for Best Actress at Berlin Film Festival for her performance as a widowed landlady who begins a torrid love affair with her young new tenant.
